The NEURON is made of what parts, and what do those parts do? * The DENDRITES receive messages from other cells - RECEPTION * Connected to the Cell Body * The CELL BODY is the cells life-support center * The AXON passes messages away from the cell body to other neurons, muscles, or glands - TRANSMISSION * The AXON does this through the Neural Impulse (ACTION POTENTIAL) which travels from the CELL BODY to the AXON, to the Terminal branches of the axon * ACTION POTENTIAL is an electro chemical process in which positively charged sodium ions cross in the neuron, creating a brief electrical charge. Positively charged Potassium ions then leave the neuron, ending the charge. * Move towards the Terminal Branches * The MYELIN SHEATH covers the AXON. * TERMINAL BRANCHES form junctions with other cells. – REACTION
The All-or-None Law states that: * A neuron will either fire or it won’t. * Neurons fire when stimulation exceeds the neuron’s threshold * Intensity of the signal will NOT increase as the strength of the stimulus increases.
Sir Charles Scott Sherrington inferred what aspect of the neuron: * He inferred that neurons must communicate across a gap: The Synapse * The SYNAPSE is the junction between the terminal branches of the sending neuron and the
